Business Insider recently reported, that the Easter holidays aren't always spent in church, painting eggs and eating chocolate. Many countries have their own Easter myths and legends which have now become as established as Bible-inspired celebrations.

For instance, on the Greek island of Corfu, people throw huge clay pots onto the streets. In Finland, young girls dress up as witches and to drive the bad spirits away they ask for chocolate.

Of course in Britain and Ireland chocolate eggs, Simnel cake and hot cross buns are still popular with children and adults alike.
